Letter from the President

 

THE PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Dear Lafayette Generals and Friends,

Thank You!   I want to say a special thank you to Alumni Members who: continue their membership each year;   attend the monthly meetings; help with all of the behind the scenes tasks to make each Alumni event a success; who attend our Alumni events; and who have made special donations to the Scholarship Fund. You keep our Alumni Association alive and moving forward.

This Last Year   Another year has flown by and looking back we enjoyed our four events: the Annual Alumni Dinner at the K Club Lodge honoring our Hall of Fame inductee (Doug Shively); our Picnic at Outbach Farm; and our Christmas Dinner and Chili Supper both held in the school cafeteria. This coming year I hope to again see those of you who attend these events. Also, I want to extend a special invitation to those of you who are members and have not attended our events. Please join us to catch up and learn about today’s Lafayette High School. Remember, the Alumni Association is for Lafayette graduates and has expanded to include those who did not graduate from Lafayette, but have an interest in supporting the school and the Alumni Association. This last group is known as “Friends of Lafayette”.

Special Projects Update and the Website I encourage you to take special note in reference to donations to our Scholarship Fund and our Oral History Project with the University of Kentucky. You will find details on both of these projects later in the newsletter. Also, the 60’s Sock Hop was well attended, and thank you Classes of the 60’s for the $1,000 donation to our Alumni Scholarship Program. The Lafayettessralumni.com website has been updated and has new information and capability to make it easier to pay dues and donate to the Scholarship Fund on line. Also, the website (www.lafayettesralumni.com) will keep you up-to-date on news and the Calendar of Events. Please check it out. 

Every One Of You Are Important Your dues, attendance at annual events and donations to the Scholarship Program are critical to continuing the Lafayette legacy and supporting our Lafayette students as they grow into becoming our future leaders. Remember “It Is Always A Good Day To Be A General”.

 

Linda L. Bach, President, LHS’62
